Bell, Nicola; Angwin, Anthony J.; Wilson, Wayne J.; Arnott, Wendy L. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2019
This study compared the spelling skills and sub-skills of young children with cochlear implants (CIs) who use spoken language only (n = 14) with those of a same-aged typically hearing (TH) control group (n = 30). Spelling accuracy was assessed using irregular and nonsense word stimuli. Error and regression analyses were conducted to provide…

Lam-Cassettari, Christa; Wadnerkar-Kamble, Meghana B.; James, Deborah M. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2015
Evidence on best practice for optimizing communication with prelingual deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH) children is lacking. This study examined the effect of a family-focused psychosocial video intervention program on parent-child communication in the context of childhood hearing loss. Fourteen hearing parents with a prelingual DHH child…

Guo, Ling-Yu; Spencer, Linda J.; Tomblin, J. Bruce – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2013
This study investigated the development of tense markers (e.g., past tense -ed) in children with cochlear implants (CIs) over a 3-year span. Nine children who received CIs before 30 months of age participated in this study at three, four, and five years postimplantation. Nine typical 3-, 4-, and 5-year- olds served as control groups. All children…

Wiefferink, Carin H.; Rieffe, Carolien; Ketelaar, Lizet; De Raeve, Leo; Frijns, Johan H. M. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2013
It is still largely unknown how receiving a cochlear implant affects the emotion understanding in deaf children. We examined indices for emotion understanding and their associations with communication skills in children aged 2.5-5 years, both hearing children (n = 52) and deaf children with a cochlear implant (n = 57). 2 aspects of emotion…

Martin, Daniela; Bat-Chava, Yael; Lalwani, Anil; Waltzman, Susan B. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2011
This study investigated factors that affect the development of positive peer relationships among deaf children with cochlear implants. Ten 5- to 6-year-old deaf children with implants were observed under conditions varying peer context difficulty in a Peer Entry task. Results revealed better outcomes for deaf children interacting in one-on-one…

Kritzer, Karen L. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2009
This study examined young deaf children's early informal/formal mathematical knowledge as measured by the Test of Early Mathematics Ability (TEMA-3). Findings from this study suggest that prior to the onset of formal schooling, young deaf children might already demonstrate evidence of academic delays. Of these 28 participants (4-6 years of age),…

DesJardin, Jean L.; Ambrose, Sophie E.; Eisenberg, Laurie S. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2009
The goal of this study was to longitudinally examine relationships between early factors (child and mother) that may influence children's phonological awareness and reading skills 3 years later in a group of young children with cochlear implants (N = 16). Mothers and children were videotaped during two storybook interactions, and children's oral…
